Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents Schubert requests and dedications. With a 'Schubert Remixed' session, and the Schubert Essay: Raymond Tallis examines Schubert's mood swings.

As part of Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert, Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents late night Schubert requests and dedications.

Write to her with your Schubert requests and dedications. Email: schubert@bbc.co.uk

Live in the studio across the week she'll also feature exclusive Schubert Remixed sessions, with contemporary artists from across the genres reinterpreting some of Schubert's great songs live in the studio.

Including at 1130, the Schubert Essay. Schubert was described as the "musician who also seemed a magician" in appealing to so many. But attempts to explain both his achievements and mood swings through theory, often fall short of explanation. The writer, philosopher and retired medical doctor Raymond Tallis re examines the neurological and psychological evidence of a composer who increasingly meditated on the darker side of the human psyche and human relationships.
